Deer Island Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Call it egg-celent, or perhaps sh–tty, but this tour around Boston’s iconic wastewater-treatment plant is as rich in history, spectacular views, and pleasant walking paths as it is free of any olfactory evidence of its unique location. The walk circles the island, taking in views of Boston to the west, the harbor islands to the south, Massachusetts Bay, and Boston’s North Shore.

The paths, part of a 60-acre park ringing the sewage-treatment facility, are a cheerful, happy use of an island that has been home to much suffering—having served as a quarantine for the mentally and physically sick, a prison for the convicted, and a place of forced internment for the innocent."
